Off to College: a free program for high school students!

Off to College is a free high school program designed by Berrien Regional Education Service Agency (Berrien RESA) and Lake Michigan College to help YOU prepare for your future.    

Off to College requires a two year commitment from you (and your family).  During your junior and senior years, you will participate in monthly seminars at Lake Michigan College.  The seminars will teach you how to become a successful college student.  

Candidates for the Off to College program should be curious, care about their future, work hard, have a positive attitude and want to go to continue their education after high school.

Students from high schools in Berrien County will be selected to participate in Off to College.  Once selected, you will work and learn with these students to prepare yourselves for college as a team.  Together, you will have access to college campuses, listen to guest speakers, learn how to study, and understand what resources are available at the college level (including financial aid). At the end of the program, you will have an understanding of college expectations and be ready to start earning a degree!

How do I plan for the transition to college, trade, or technical school?
